Home at last ...

What a day , what a weekend ...
Alice is now home at last , her surgery has gone well and she has internal stitches and a lampshade collar to stop her chewing at the wound , but at present she is spark out on the sofa as usual .....

It was awful at the vet hospital though ( apart from paying the £300 bill I mean .... worth every penny !!!) seeing two women in tears with just a collar in their hands and no pet , a puppy that had been run over , a very ripped open dog ( accident with a gate or some wire ) and a woman and a young man distraught over a blue macau that was on oxygen and they were desparately making calls trying to get an expert to take on the bird's care . Heartbreaking stuff and such a relief to get out of there with Alice still in one piece ....

I'm clearly ill. Now whenever something bad happens, my second thought (after "oh merde") is"Hey something to blog about!"

Oh and, sorry to hear about Alice...

Oh my. Alice has been through it. One of my cats has a death wish and we've spent a lot of time at the animal hospital. It's not the most fun, that's for sure.
But - you're home with her and all is on the way to being well.

Pics of the collar? Please?
